3-1 Senators

Karlsson schools Drew Doughty again with a shorthanded goal and the world is in awe.

Because he’s better than Drew Doughty.

GWG: Erik Karlsson

Deck seems stacked against for this one, so why not?

Record: 20-24, 23 Points

3-2 Kings
GWG: Anze Kopitar

With Ottawa visiting California, it’s nice for Kings fans to be able to see an elite defenseman once in a while.

3-2 Kings
GWG: Drew Doughty

The Sens get outshot badly in this one but manage to hang on thanks to some unreal goaltending. Unfortunately things will come crashing down when they drop this game in overtime.

Record: 24-20, 29 Points
2 Exact Scores, 3 Game Winning Goals

4-3 Kings
GWG: Jake Muzzin

Sens go down in heart-breaking fashion when a Muzzin shot from the point finds its way through with under five mins left to break a tie.

Record: 24-20, 26 Points
0 Exact Scores, 2 Game Winning Goals

2-1 Senators
GWG: Mike Hoffman

Is the California magic back again? Last season, Ottawa's drive to the playoffs was ignited by the California road trip sweep. Though Ottawa's march doesn't have to be quite as dominant this year, I think this game still could be the start of something special.

Record: 19-25, 20 Points
0 Exact Scores, 1 Game Winning Goals

3-0 Kings
GWG: Drew Doughty

The Kings are a possession machine. They're legitimately good this year, as they're winning games to go along with amazing underlying numbers. It'll be an extremely tough game for Ottawa, and I could see them getting shut out.
